Heartfelt Ceremonies for all Occasions!
I worked for many years in the Entertainment Industry, primarily as a professional actor, then as a casting consultant, and finally as an agent. I then had a complete career change, and ran my own business as a Reiki Master, meditation and spiritual development teacher. Another career change found me working as an Employment Consultant in Job Services, mainly for the Salvation Army Employment Plus, which I continued to do for 10 years. I am an experienced Life and Career Coach, and my qualifications include Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, a Diploma in Stress Management, and, of course, I was a qualified and government appointed Civil Marriage Celebrant for 10 years.
All these experiences taught me empathy, insight, active listening skills, patience, and the ability to ask the questions that help people to understand the motivations that lead to their actions and decisions. I have a good speaking voice, and I am confident in addressing large groups of people. I am warm, friendly and have a sense of humour - all helpful skills for navigating life - especially the sense of humour!
Throughout my working life, I have always strived to make a positive contribution towards the welfare and happiness of others and I was attracted to Celebrancy as another way of making that contribution. I am passionate about assisting people in creating their perfect ceremonies, in guiding families through their grief to create meaningful funerals, plus other rites of passage and life celebrations. Assisting my clients to express themselves and create their own unique ceremony is most rewarding, and is also an expression of my own creativity. My Life Coaching skills are very useful in helping people to understand their motivations and deal with their challenges.
I am a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants.
